What is Plasma Fibroblast?
Plasma Fibroblast is a non-surgical treatment that tightens and lifts the skin with little to no downtime. The pen-like device produces a tiny plasma flash also referred as a plasma arc (thermal energy mixed with gasses in the air which contain positively charged ions and negatively charged electrons). The tool itself never touches the skin, however the plasma flash creates a tiny dot upon contact. This is known as sublimation. Sublimation (the action of turning matter from solid, to gas bypassing the liquid stage).
In other words, we are ‘evaporating’ the excess tissue without the application of excess heat and in a very superficial controlled manner. The effect causes an instant contraction of the tissue, minimizing wrinkles and sagging skin. Stimulating skin regeneration and collagen production.
Does it hurt?
Plasma fibroblast is a non-surgical treatment with little to no pain or minimal discomfort reported by patients. A topical numbing cream is applied to treatment area prior to procedure.
Are there any side effects?
Immediately after the Fibroblast procedure, you may notice that your skin is red and slightly swollen. This is normal and should subside within 3-5 days. Though you may see a slight redness lingering from time of treatment up to 2 months (depending on part of body).
During the procedure, small carbon crusts form on the skin. You should avoid the urge to touch these crusts post-procedure. You can expect them to last between 5-10 days. They’ll naturally fall off as new skin rebuilds underneath the treated area. Some clients may experience slight change in skin pigmentation. If you are prone to hyper-pigmentation or hypo-pigmentation please tell your technician.
